Sunmbo+David: The Sheraton Hotel, Ikeja, Lagos

I have been trying to blog this for a while and finally, here we are about two years after we shot this wedding.

Sunmbo is a beautiful soul and I was honoured when she called me up to say she wanted me to shoot her wedding. Excitedly, we made plans for her pre wedding session which will be posted here later and couldn’t wait for her wedding day to come.

When I met David, I was impressed due his quiet outlook and calmness.  I could understand his personality being a pastor.

I walked into Sheraton Hotels, Ikeja Lagos that early morning eager to shoot and that is one thing I love about weddings of a couple I love…..the eagerness to shoot.

The Ring is the symbol of love and commitment. A never ending circle that indicates what love in a marriage is. I loved these rings and this was one of my favourite photographs of the day.
